Sigh, should have expected a review like that from you. I did not like your
way of phrasing, however, I appreciate the feedback, so thank you

If you take a look at their story - well, considering cutting out these "okay thanks" reviews next year. It was originally meant to credit people who were civil and theoretically might improve. Currently it seems to just be a lot of idiots lying.

They added an author note chapter saying:

A/N Ah do not despair (though I doubt you are) I just have something to say. Yeah, our great friend Farla left some insight and it made me WANT TO QUIT THIS STORY! Sniff she was so meeeeeannn!
Haha okay, I'm just kidding, I'm not going to let a permanently PMS-ing psycho-writer (if she reads this, I suppose I'm dead) ruin this writing experience.
Since she insulted me like that, it made me want to at least attempt to write another chapter to this story. She won't keep me down! Lol, I hope the next chapter (most likely released by Sunday) pleases you guys. Bye, sorry for the ramble!

followed by writing me a second whiny story for me.

Fuck you you fucking grammar nazi! I don't appreciate users dictating how I
write my stories and how I write my stories is none of your concern.

Yes, I'm highly aware. I know all about how the moon and sun orbit and how the
earth rotates to cause the day and night change. Please get an imagination and
allow yourself to read something not entirely conformed to reality so you can
see the romantic fluff. And please stop being a hater. Have a nice day. C:

What's really, really depressing here is I think they're actually dumb enough to think I meant "the moon doesn't follow the night because it's in love" and not "the moon doesn't always rise and set at night".

My reply may seem fast, but I must tell you that I love receiving some real,
constructive criticism. I sincerely thank you for your advice.

I agree that the starting point is dull and boring, but, very strangely, it
was the only opening that gained any traction to inspire this fan fiction from
very vague outline with definite end point to definite beginning and ending
points with somewhat vague in between outlines. My original opening was
actually the battle with Sam. I tried to make it work. I even tried shifting
the scene instead to shortly after - a very important event later in the

Another reason I posted the opening the way I did will probably sound strange.
The first person view and present tense is an experiment. I need some time to
feel it out and see how it fits me. The prologue was meant to introduce the
perspective character and give a sense of his personality, positives and
negatives. Which actually relates back to the setting for the opening, now
that I think about it.


Great tips on capitalization. Though I should know better, I thought back to
the games and the odd use of capitalization. I'll keep the tip in mind for
this and all my projects.

No, his breakfast doesn't matter. I thought I'd include it as some personal
details to help flesh the character out for readers. Poor planning or
execution on my part.

He doesn't actually idolize Sam. Rather, he recognized how many aspired to the
larger-than-life persona. He wasn't even thinking about the famous dragon
trainer or anybody in particular while preparing for the first day of his
journey. The article combined with his lack of decision to create a spark. To
answer your second question, they are definitely not handing out dragon
pokemon as starters, nor do the starters eventually dual-type to include
dragon. If there are other types you would definitely NOT like to see, I'm
willing to take suggestions.

Who he does idolize was very, very thinly hinted at (too thinly I'd imagine to
even guess just yet) and is important to later plot points.

Sadly yes, the prologue concluded without any major, interesting event. I also
didn't really think of it as a cliffhanger. Rather, it was a transition.

Not my best work by any conceivable stretch of the imagination.

If you continue to read this story, I would certainly appreciated further
criticism. If not, I thank you for your time pointing out areas for
improvement in my prologue.

This is actually an interesting response and brings up an important point: if you're writing something that almost always goes a particular way, for the love of god put some hints in there it's going somewhere different. Or at least don't split up the introduction and the actual execution across chapters.

You get more slack for this the longer the story's been going on, but it's something people seem to just not get.

I don't wanna fight but why would u read my story and mark it "Terrible"? Do u
know how long I worked on thinking up everything for that story? Good way to
break my heart!

Story: Butterfly Wings
Chapter: 1. The Second Day

From: you should know-guess ()

you REALLY write tough reviews! i don't like it, especially if your new and
not a pro writer. i'm a new writer on this site myself and i don't want people
getting hurt because of the reviews you write.

even if you do want to write something tough- try break it down slowly( really
slow) maybe use some nice words, say what you liked about the story, etc.

so please, don't write something mean and people won't send these reviews on
this site.

see ya!

"Thank you for letting me know about the spelling errors. Even if one reads
through it a couple of times, they still slip through. Ahaha.

I figured since I couldnt come up with names for every since pokemon, example
the Murkrow that Aurora speaks to, to capitalize the names of the pokemon
since the show, and even the game, use the species name of the pokemon as the
name to that specific pokemon.

I thought about seperating the chapters, I couldnt quite get to that point in
figuring out the site. Ahaha still new and trying to figure out how to get to
everything. I'll try to get to that as soon as I find some more time to play
around with the site. Work, family, and life get in the way a lot hahaha" =3

Thank you for the review, I'll work on correcting my furture mistakes. My
phone has a auto correct built inside of it so catching my errors is hard.

Posting this batch early because the story thing might get taken down and I want everyone to be able to bask in it. It's not as awesome as the crimson red river of sadness, but what is?

Apparently there have not been protests of anything since WWI. I suppose I must have dreamed those evenings on the corner during the Iraqi escalation, that march on the state capital after Prop 8 and the other anti-gay initiatives in the cycle passed... To say nothing of those odd news segments about "teabaggers," which is probably the more relevant comparison here.

I think they just hit that chapter in class recently and learned about how WWI had the most serious importantest protests about the true horrors people were subjected to - just like my reviews!.

In a month or two they'll reach the Civil War and it'll be all about how they're like the northerners coming down to free the enslaved bad fanfics from the chains of my reviews.

...don't most history classes teach chronologically? Next up is the Holocaust.

My classes went industrial revolution -> WW1 -> Civil War a bunch of times... which in retrospect really makes no sense.

I think it was that we did the unit on Europe up to the industrialization of war, then go back and do industrialization in America.

That makes sense. Sort of. Not really. My school broke it down into World History sophomore year and American History junior year.

We did the same, but World History was basically America and Europe.

Then AP American History covered the world wars anyway. I don't remember if it was actually on the test or if the teacher just assumed the regular history teachers sucked.

Aw, now it's deleted, and they didn't even reply to my review. It was a nice one and everything! I told them I really liked the part where their protagonist opened her email with a flourish, little touches like that can really bring out the essence of a character.

As I warned you: PMs you send may be reposted. Don't send anything you wouldn't admit to.

While you're here, which one are you?
